Great Stookan on the North coast of Ireland, taken from Giant's Causeway. Although I have thrown focus out in the distance you can see make out Grandmother Rock on the original - looks like a bent over old woman climbing the hill.

Canon 5D + 40mm pancake

I can't see Grandma?

@ Northstar; just for you. This is a crop from the unfinished pano; the picture I posted was a single frame shot ( but multiple exposure of course). The pano of this is being a real pain as there are so many bracketed frames, and the whole thing is blended by hand.

You can just make out Grandma climbing the hill. On this pano I have held focus in the distance but still not sure which one I am going to go with.

That is very special.
Did you use some extra light in front on the rocks?

Thanks candyman, very pleased with your comment. I'll be giving my techniques away, but yes I carry a very light weight lasolite, five foot across but folds really small and hangs from my belt. Used the gold foil side.
Very kind of you to share some of your techniques. Thanks

Canon 5D + 40mm pancake

Feel like I'm in the "300" movie. Very nice Sporgon.

The 40mm pancake is a small lens. However, this little guy plays big role in Canon lineup. I'm thinking selling my a7r + FE 55mm and replace with 5D III + pancake.

Dylan...your signature line shows that you already have a 5d3 and 40mm?

Yes, indeed. I have this combo 2-3yrs now. I meant, once I sold a7r and 55mm, the 5D III + 40mm pancake will become my compact system.

Badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park in south-western Alberta. Unfortunately there's a bit of banding that I've only been successful in partially correcting.

And this was shot on the same day; 40D + Tokina 12-24 f/4.

Delft Railway station area, the Netherlands. Note that most of what can be seen in this picture no longer exists as they have almost completely demolished the station area due to construction of a new train tunnel.

Kinderdijk in the Netherlands.

That's rather nice. I do find that is scenes with low contrast the older cameras ( ie 20-40D 5D etc) do give a pleasing tonal quality.

Very nice picture. I like the composition and general tonal qualities.

Thank you! I'm happy this picture brings out such positive responses. I remember being rather stunned at the time when this appeared on my computer screen. The color of the bushes shows through the snow and the sky has really nice streaks that helps give this one an almost painted look :) It's an absolute highlight from my first few months into digital photography.
